    Current Employee - IT Recruitment Consultant in Nantwich, England (UK)

    I have been working at OCC Computer full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really relaxed, professional environment, great leadership both from the owners historically and particularly from the Directors who run the business day to day. They are still very hands on recruiters themselves and lead by example; giving us enough room to work the way we want to (but with strong guidelines) and yet being there when we need help or advice.

    Cons

    I personally would like the business to grow quicker, to be able to build a bigger team of recruiters and this is happening slowly. The owners are very cautious with investment, but on the other hand maybe that's why the company has been going over 40yrs....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep recruiting new people :)

    I have been working at OCC Computer

    Pros

    Relative freedom to choose target markets
    Low pressure environment
    Fully expensed travel to meetings and entertaining
    Established brand name offers security
    Cash rich business

    Cons

    Lack of incentives and recognition for high achievers
    Poor holiday entitlement (unless you have been there for more than 5 years)
    Poor benefits package compared to the competition
    Negative employees not dealt with and allowed to affect others
    Lack of career progression

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incentivise staff
    Provide competition on the sales floor
    Place more of an emphasis on training, guidance and helping people "invest in themselves."
